I'm a XC MT biker and NOT a downhill biker...there are some really crazy drops at Fortune for the downhill biker. For XC, there is quite a long way up to to get to the start of the main trail (Sunset) but there are many good and short trails at the bottom.
For the Sunset climb, you are rewarded at the top with a nice view (you can see Tremblant afar on a really nice day).
This is where I started to ride a few years back...very technical mountain but fun flowing mountain if your skills are good...Sunset being the longest one (takes me approx. 45-60 min just that trail!)
Some easy trails but most are intermediate (blue) to advance skill level (1 and 2 diamond)! You can rarely sit on your bike unless you are climbing.
So far I have ridden Keslo, Albion Hills, Durham Forests as well as trails near Bromont and some trails in Tremblant and Rigaud. So far, I couldn't find a mountain offering many KM of trails as difficult as Fortune but I am sure there are some outthere.
The map is not the best but these trails are being taken care of by a group of volunteer. They did an awsome job over the past years...they have really cleaned it up.
X-Steam trail in Kelso without the easy part...they are more roots or rocks to watch for but also easier segments.
